Type III Civilizations are civilizations that have control over at least an entire galaxy, and theoretically are able to harness all the power available in that galaxy.

Examples of Type III CivilizationsEdit

In these examples, the exact power consumption of their entire civilizations is often unknown. They are estimated to be type II based on the scope of their influence and technology. IE, civilizations with FTL drives and control over entire galaxies, or with abilities to affect the universe on the planetary scale.

The following examples are a different type of civilization from the ones previously mentioned. They are likely to no longer have physical bodies, having converted themselves to energy or other noncorporeal forms, allowing themselves to somehow influence entire galaxies.
